Obscure Bible phraseology help, please?

uses the phrase "or ever they came at the bottom of the den." I haven't been able to find any explanations about what that particular phrase means. Does anyone have any insights?
My best guess is "before they reached the floor of the den," but that could be way off.
I'm interested in this verse primarily from a language point of view, rather than just finding out the meaning. Does anyone have any other insights into the phrase "or ever"?
